Lorde announces Australia and NZ tour

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/06/2017 Danielle McGrane

Lorde has announced a massive headline tour of Australia, following six shows in her native New Zealand later this year.

The 20-year-old star will play some of the country's most loved venues, including the Sydney Opera House forecourt, a venue recently rocked by her fellow New Zealanders, Crowded House, to mark the band's 30th anniversary.

Lorde will be the youngest person to headline a concert on the Opera House's steps and will also be taking on larger venues such as Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne and Riverstage in Brisbane in November.

At the same time, Harry Styles has announced his updated tour details for next year which include four arena dates in Australia on his 56-date world tour.

He is already coming Down Under to play a one-off show in Sydney's Enmore Theatre on November 26 this year.

Styles has been riding high on the back of the release of his number one self-titled debut album, while Lorde will be releasing her second album, Melodrama, next week.

This will be Lorde's follow up to her first record, the Grammy award winning Pure Heroine, which featured hits including Royals and Tennis Court.

Lorde has been releasing tracks from Melodrama including Green Light and Liability in the run up to the album's June 16 release.
